It’s been a long time coming, and there are still a few events to be finalized, but we now have a bit more of an idea of where the Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) racing will take place in 2024 and who will be competing.

What we’ve known as the PTO Tour now becomes the T100 World Triathlon Tour thanks to “the PTO’s partnership agreement with World Triathlon in August 2023, which designated it as ‘the official World Championship tour of long distance triathlon.'”

8-race series

Things get started in Miami in March at Clash Miami and finish at the end of November with a Grand Final event that has yet to be announced, but one would imagine will take place somewhere in the Middle East with the Dubai T100 race taking place from Nov. 16 to 17. There’s one other race that hasn’t yet been announced in California in June – the rumour mill puts that event in San Francisco alongside the Escape from Alcatraz event.

According to PTO CEO Sam Renouf the majority of these races have three to five year contracts, which means that the schedule should be set in place for the next few years.

  1. 9-10 March – Miami T100
  2. 13-14 April – Singapore T100
  3. June TBA – California T100
  4. 27-28 July – London T100
  5. 28-29 Sept – Ibiza T100
  6. 19-20 Oct – Lake Las Vegas T100
  7. 16-17 Nov – Dubai T100
  8. 29-30 Nov – Grand Final – location to be announced soon

The athletes contracted to compete in the series need to race in a minimum of five of the series events.

The women’s line up includes all of the top 15 PTO World Ranked athletes, along with a few notable “wild cards” including defending Olympic champion Flora Duffy and American Olympic hopeful Taylor Spivey. Here’s the list:

#1 Anne Haug (GER),  #2 Ashleigh Gentle (AUS), #3 Taylor Knibb (USA), #4 Lucy Charles-Barclay (GBR), #5 Laura Philipp (GER), #6 Kat Matthews (GBR), #7 Paula Findlay (CAN), #8 Daniela Ryf (SUI), #9 Imogen Simmonds (SUI), #10 Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR), #11 Chelsea Sodaro (USA), #12 Marjolaine Pierré (FRA), #13 Skye Moench (USA), #14 Tamara Jewett (CAN), #15 India Lee (GBR), #17 Amelia Watkinson (NZL) #22 Holly Lawrence (GBR), #25 Lucy Byram (GBR), Taylor Spivey (USA) and Flora Duffy (BER).

Notably absent from the men’s list is defending Olympic champion Kristian Blummenfelt. The list does include two-time Olympic gold medalist Alistair Brownlee, last year’s PTO European Open champ Max Neumann and some other interesting “wild card” choices including Belgian Marten Van Riel and Spanish star Javier Gomez. Here’s the men’s list:

#2 Magnus Ditlev (DEN), #3 Jason West (USA), #5 Pieter Heemeryck (BEL), #6 Mathis Margirier (FRA), #7 Rudy Von Berg (USA), #8 Leon Chevalier (FRA), #9 Sam Long (USA), #11 Daniel Baekkegard (DEN), #12 Bradley Weiss (RSA), #13 Sam Laidlow (FRA), #14 Frederic Funk (GER), #15 Clement Mignon (FRA), #16 Aaron Royle (AUS), #17 David McNamee (GBR), #23 Ben Kanute (USA), #26 Rico Bogen (GER), #31 Alistair Brownlee (GBR), #174 Max Neumann (AUS), #205 Marten Van Riel (BEL) and #267 Javier Gomez (ESP).

While contract athletes are expected to compete at five events, with up to 20 competing at each race, “racing obligations for athletes who’ve qualified and will compete in the Olympics have been reduced.” There will also be additional “wild card” competitors at various events “to be agreed between World Triathlon and PTO.”

There’s lots of money up for grabs, including US$250,000 at each race ($25,000 for first, $16,000 for second, $12,000 for third) with an additional US$2 million prize pool for the series with $210,000 going to the winner. According to the PTO, the prize money, bonus and contracts “provides more than $7,000,000 in athlete compensation.”

T100 Brand

The races will all include a 2 km swim, 80 km bike and an 18 km run, which adds up to 100 km of racing.

“This was the right moment for us to introduce a more consumer facing brand,” said PTO CEO Sam Renouf. “As we’ve developed the races and the broadcast product over the past three years, we’ve continued to listen to feedback from all parties, including our broadcast partners, the media, fans and, of course, the athletes who co-own the organisation. It was clear that we needed to be more explicit about this being a triathlon world tour as well as hero the exciting 100km distance, which continues to mark us out and deliver compelling racing. With races being known as the Singapore T100 or Ibiza T100, we believe it will help establish T100 as both a powerful brand as well as a unique format – which will only help on the mission to take the sport more mainstream. This will create more opportunities to attract new host cities, commercial sponsors and engage amateurs and mass participants who we will be performing at each of our stops this year.”
